We were in Bowen for a funeral so at short notice, we really struggled to get 8 consecutive nights accommodation. In the end we had to stay at four locations! Possibly corporate bookings are chocking the Bowen capacity for real tourism. In any case, the staff at Bluewater Harbour were as accommodating as they could be and helped up by calling every accommodation business in town looking for a place for us. Amazingly helpful people - thanks folks.

The hotel is a modern business style hotel, with large very clean and comfortable rooms giving us great value for money. The hotel offered fast inexpensive Internet connections. Dale the owner could not have been more helpful, suggesting a restaurant to eat at late on a Saturday night (even calling them to make a reservation). You really could not wish for anything more if you need a hotel room in or around Bowen. Highly recommended.

It is a thrill to my family that I have built a motel quite late in life as all of us are enjoying meeting interesting people that come from all around the world. The two years that we have operated the motel has brought to us a great joy.
Ian ,Thank You for your comment it is so very encouraging to us.

The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was hot, very nice and well presented, and the rooms are new, clean and well appointed. I see a lot of motels in my travels for work and this is easily one of the best.
